Tech Today: Google Chromebook, Angry Birds web

It's the tech news that broke after you logged-off.

Samsung Series 5 Chromebook unveiled
The first of a new breed of Google Chrome OS-packing laptops arrived this evening with the Samsung Series 5 Chromebook. The super-slim device will boast just 16GB of memory, but will have a dual-core 1.66GHx Intel Atom Processor, a 12.1-inch screen and most importantly the Google Chrome OS.

The Google Chromebox gets a mention
We're still wondering what the point of this is, but Google also gave us a first look at a Chromebox, which looks a little bit like a Mac Mini and can be plugged into desktop computer to service up a Google Chrome experience. Can't see many takers for that one, but at least it looks cool.
